​Employment at Deutsche Schule Melbourne

For 2020 and beyond, we are looking for teachers to join our leading bilingual primary school in Fitzroy North, Victoria.

Deutsche Schule Melbourne delivers a German-English bilingual education for families who value the benefits it offers. The vision for our students is to grow up learning two languages at the same time, preparing them to become involved citizens of the world.

Working at our school means working at a bilingual school, which is part of a network of 140 schools in 72 countries accredited by the Central Agency for German Schools Abroad. 

Our aim for the future is to continue the strong growth of our school and ultimately extend our educational offer to a secondary school program based on the International Baccalaureate in German and English (GIB).

We are currently offering the following employment opportunities:

You speak either German or English at a native speaker-level and are fluent in the other language. Our successful immersion model is based on the ‘one teacher-one language’ approach, which means classes are taught in either English or German, based on the teacher’s native language. 

Become part of our passionate team of teachers and help shape the growth of our school by applying your excellent skills and experience in the classroom and beyond.

Testimonial I

'I had a fantastic time during my internship at DSM. All interns felt well taken care of and enjoyed working in this open and friendly atmosphere. It was a special experience for me supporting the students, being part of their bilingual learning journey and to also develop myself as aspiring teacher. Time flies when you are having a great time.'
Luise Wolff

Testimonial II

'My two-month internship at DSM greatly expanded my knowledge of bilingual teaching and learning. This was especially due to the friendly atmosphere at the school and the great support of my mentors. My internship exceeded all my expectations! I can definitely highly recommend an internship at DSM!'
Carmen Link

Testimonial III

'The internship at DSM offers me a great opportunity to get to know the daily routine of a bilingual primary school. You get so many opportunities to teach classes by yourself or to actively contribute to organising school trips or projects. The atmosphere at the school is very warm and welcoming, and it is a pleasure working with the teachers - you get the feeling you are an important part of the school life. And of course you really become fond of the children.'
